When you need a reliable solution that is exceptionally durable in construction, our Polyethylene Foam Sheets 1.7LB are the perfect solution. Made with quality material with a particular nature, this is a long-lasting option ideal for a range of projects.

One of the more durable options on the market, polyethylene foam is a strong closed-cell foam. Exceptionally well suited as a material or a component material in shock absorbing products, this closed-cell padding is also an effective way to dampen some of the effects of vibrations for sensitive packaging. The ability to absorb impacts and vibrations makes these Polyethylene Foam Sheets 1.7LB ideal for any packages which may receive indelicate handling or require long-distance transportation. We offer this versatile foam solution in several sizes and thickness to help you get the right solution. When you need extra protection from vibrations, choose a thicker option which will help with absorption. The sizes are in a range of options to accommodate commonly needed sizes for a range of projects. When you need a reliable foam, this is a great choice that is also versatile in its purposes.

Excellent Product
Alex | June 1st, 2023
Good foam, more durable and firm than open cell foam. It's good for acting as siding and top/bottoms for tool cases. This foam has no smell, and is more water resistant than open cell foam. The 1/4 size has one side open, while the other is flat/sealed. Not a big issue for my purposes. Also, because it's closed cell, it acts more like bubble wrap. Over time, any compression will cause it to flatten, which is true of most closed cell foams. Hassle-free shipping to Canada was a nice surprise. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.
